Gene Gebolys

Founder and CEO, World Energy, Northeastern U.S.

Gene Gebolys is the Founder and CEO of World Energy, which he launched 25 years ago to accelerate the commercialization of alternatives to fossil-based motor fuels. It is the world’s first commercial-scale sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) producer.

In total, World Energy is investing USD15 billion in California, Texas and Newfoundland to help leaders accelerate their efforts to make net-zero real.
